Ingredients
  

Crust:

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine softened
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon zest divided
  • 1/2 cup crystallized ginger minced
  • Pinch salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups GF Flour Blend

Topping:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 6 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp GF Flour Blend
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • Using an electric mixer, beat the butter then add in icing sugar, and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in half a teaspoon of the lemon zest, the ground ginger, the crystallized ginger, and salt.
  • Add the flour in 1/4 cup at a time, beating after each addition. Spread the crust mixture evenly over the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until browned lightly around the edges.
  • In another bowl, beat all the topping ingredients together until well blended.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and pour the lemon batter over. Return to oven and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the top is golden.
  • If you want, sift a little additional powdered sugar over the top.
  • Once cool, dust with additional icing sugar.
